Has anyone else noticed a difference in the blogging world lately? I know some people have, because I have seen similar posts on their pages.
I go to my feed, and there's very little that interests me. I refresh my feed and no new posts pop up. It seems that everyone, including myself, is out of things to say. And I don't like it.
I want to talk about more than the day to day happenings of life. I want to get deeper. I want to share thoughts that strike me throughout the day. But I'm not sure why that doesn't happen. I think that sometimes I stop myself, because I'm scared. Or maybe I'm just not as into blogging as I used to be and I just don't have the time to write these thoughts down or formulate them in a way that would make sense to anyone other than myself.
So this is my goal. I want more randomness on the blog. Less this is what I did this weekend and more this is how I feel right at this very minute. I don't want to fear what my readers might think. It's not the people I don't know who worry me, it's the people I do know who read my blog that make me nervous and cause me to hesitate when hitting publish. I'm a fairly shy person, and so sharing my feelings has never been easy for me. But so what if I'm open and honest and somebody doesn't like my opinion? That's what a blog is all about. Saying what's on your mind and having a voice.
So here's to bringing back our voices.
And hopefully bringing back some inspiration as well.
